, technology and innovation. let's invest in america. so we can create increased economic activity. we're in the midst of a very schizophrenic economic recovery. it's a recovery that has disproportionately benefited the wealthy in america. let's just look at the facts that have been laid before us. we've got corporate profits that are way up. stock market way up. c.e.o. compensation way up. productivity of the american worker way up. yet wages have remained stagnant and unemployment is still stubbornly high. working families and middle class folks have been left behind in the context of this recovery. that's why we believe the first element of any budget has to invest in america. because if you invest in america , you increase economic activity, you increase economic activity, you raise consumer demand. you raise consumer demand, the economy grows. if the economy grows by definition the deficit will be reduced. and let me also note, despite all the rhetoric from some of my friends on the other side of the aisle, under this administration , barack obama, the deficit has ctually been red
- technology area, because technology is simply changing too quickly. judges are, therefore being uses of resolve typical interpretation, which they are not equipped to answer in this antext, a context such as search warrant application. this was discussed earlier this ,fternoon at the earlier panel ways to restructure and make amendments to the war and model. a special advocate approach is one approach, encouraging disclosure. encouraging interpretation is another approach. both of those are interesting and promising ideas for how to reform the foreign intelligence surveillance act to deal with new technology. let me suggest two other approaches, one which has been discussed and implemented and the other which has not been. one is content provision. having the government authority last for a certain number of years, and then expire putting the burden on the government to secretly love that power. sunset provisions were originally designed to have testing to see if the government a fewneeds that power years later. today, in light of technology, it is a way to make sure that government
the on communications and intelligence he technology and the privacy and civil liberties oversight board. we are looking across the board at intelligence chattering to -- intelligence gathering to ensure as we gather intelligence we are accounting for the privacy shared by americans and citizens around the world. we also need to ensure that our -- that we are more effectively weighing the risks and rewards of our activity and focusing above all on threats to the american people. we need to make sure we are collecting information just because we can't, but because we should. because we need it for our security. too long. not go on but i think it's important to contextualize some of these revelations to look at what the administration is doing to review our intelligence activities and to look at how we balance the need for security and the completely transformed world we live in because of the technology advances that have occurred. earlier,, as i said the clear and real type of concerns that americans have around the world. sure that ourmake intelligence gathering above all is about protecting security.

-like issues. data and analysis help. two as i see it -- technology and privacy. google knows a lot more about you and me than the federal government does. do we care about that if their only point is to make sure they know before we do what i want to buy? the other question is more complicated. technology plus threat question. in the old days, we could have search warrants. we knew what their phone numbers were. that was the threat. now the threat is much more diffuse. we do not know who we are looking for. we need to do some trolling. how do we do that without violating people's privacy and other rights -- that is a big issue. it also has an international dimension. we are doing that trolling abroad as well as at home. we need to work out arrangements with our own public and with our allies and friends and with people who are not always our friends. in any case, thank you all. podcast on rand.org. >> you all did a great job answering questions. national cable satellite corp. 2013] national captioning >> one of the tenants that is incredibly important is universal service, the idea that all a
in technology and what that means in terms of carbon and the refining of carbon. thatve gone from a nation was very dependent on importation of carbon to a nation that we will ultimately become an exporter of carbon in the future. is is going to be a major change. changing andico liberalizing their energy, it will only empower texas and other components of this country. i do believe having aced drunker mexico -- i do believe having a stronger mexico makes the u.s. stronger. let me also talk about a few things people do not talk about enough. that is the energy costs. the blackrock, we have two major data centers. one is in washington on the columbia river and one that we are building right now in buffalo, new york. we are paying approximately 3.5 cents per kilowatt. datahad to do these centers in europe, i would be paying $.18 per kilowatt in parts of germany and other parts of europe it is over it $.80 per kilowatt. here we are. we have cheaper energy. we have the cheaper cost of energy for manufacturing. the other thing where we spent a great deal of time is our educational system urge -
that it has the benefits of climate change as well as the marketplace. we will develop clean technologies that will empower the world and protect our environment at the same time. we are on pace to become the largest oil reducer by 2020. the largest oil producer in the world. that gives us the promise of alternative fuels come including shale gas. we will become fully energy self-sufficient i the year 2035. -- by the year 2035. it is energy that fuels our air and that private sector. that is the energy that comes out of american value called entrepreneurship. the united states knows how to cultivate startups. not too long ago, our country was a start up. innovation is not just in our interest, but in our dna. that is why we aggressively protect intellectual property rights as part of a strong transparent or accountable or legal system. today we need entrepreneurship more than ever. as more and more young people join the labor market, the world would need about half one billion new jobs by 2030. many of those jobs i guarantee you have not even been invented yet. entrepreneurship would help

the japanese people, their brilliance, creativity, technology, resilience, and i wanted them to know america still cared. when tom foley was there, they knew america cared. i leave you with this. i think they had a good time and they enjoyed it. i know he did. there were seven japanese prime ministers in my eight years as there were seven japanese prime ministers in my eight years as president. we are not the only people that have turmoil. the best politician was the prime minister. tragically, as a young man, he had a stroke. he endured for 43 days after his stroke. when he died, in a busy world full of things to do, it was something an anti-climax. i was appalled than i was the only leader of a major country to come to his funeral. i flew to japan so i can go. i liked him and admired him and thought he had set forth a direction that gave japan the best chance they had to succeed until he took office. at the end of the funeral, young japanese women appeared with flowers. his ashes were on a high wall totally made of flowers of the rising sun. everyone there went up and bowed to his ashes an

in tunisia. the development of technology has only refined the art of surveillance. it only shifted things from being a physical kind of surveillance to a digital kind of surveillance. both of those mixed together? you will be living in fear and you will not be expressing yourself. as a result of that you have all types of expression, artistic expression, academic expression, human expression that you cannot express, that you are stifled from expressing. that is a problem. i am not saying we are living in fear because right now we are not afraid. you know what? it might take us 20 years, 50 years, 100 years, but if we do not stop this right now? we will be living in fear. let me tell you, we do not want that. we do not want to be a committed -- community, nation of citizens living in fear. i am really glad that you are all out here today, taking concrete steps to addressing this. not a lot of people really know what is happening. they tell you they have nothing to hide, why should they be afraid? well, you are not afraid, but if we keep going down this road, you will be. at its core level
that only a few years ago people did not realize the change of technology and what that has done in terms of extraction of carbon and refining of carbon. i am sure andrew will talk about this in a minute. we have gone from a country that has on very dependent from importation of carbons to a country that exports carbon. this will be a major change, and as we see mexico changing and the verbalizing their energy law, it will only empower texas and other components of this country, and i believe having a stronger mexico only makes the united states in even stronger. this will become another major component. let me talk about a few things that people just do not talk about enough, and that is our energy cost. at blackrock, we have two major data centers. one in washington, on the columbia river, and one that we are building right now in buffalo, new york. we are paying approximately 3 1/2 cents per kilowatt. if i had to do these data centers in europe, i would be paying $.18 per kilowatt. in other parts of europe, it is over $.80 per kilowatt. we have cheaper energy, have cheaper cost of ener

in these cutting edge technologies. so our economy has made progress and that progress has made the united states an even better place to invest. but i want to underscore for everyone here that we are not satisfied with the current pace of job creation and economic growth. we know that there are things that we can do to invest in american skills, american innovation, and american infrastructure. so that the united states remains the most attractive place around the globe to do business. taking action in these areas is good for growth and it's good for job creation. while the process create unnecessary anxiety, congress proved it can still do what is needed when it came together on a bipartisan basis just two weeks ago to reopen our government and raise the statutory debt limit. it's now time for congress to make a pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda the focal point. this will strengthen our economy at home and further cement the united states as the best place to invest, hire, and grow businesses. let me point to the key areas we can make a difference going forward. first as democrats and republicans mee

and creative ways to look to use the agricultural technology in the economy. inflation rateod has been just historically low. ofgress gives very little that food dollar, which surprises people. congress gets about $.15 of every food dollar spent. there's a lot of money that goes into the packaging, working, and add -- marketing and ads. there is going to be an expanding need for food production locally. we are seeing a worldwide population increase. seems to belass expanding, and the protein and nutrition will be needed. i am confident and convinced that the market will continue to be strong. i'm also confident that farmers and producers in this country pay attention to markets, and they recognize that when prices are going down that they need to moderate or adjust their planning. we are going to have a bumper crop in corn this year, but that is going to allow us to replenish what has been a significantly low supply of corn in the last years because of drought, floods, and storms. anday potentially pick up, make it a little bit easier to get profits. it is a delicate balance, but i am confi

are getting mad at the united states is because we have the technology and they are jealous. if they're the same technology they would be doing the same thing to us. most of the people and united states to claim this is a christian nation, than most christians need to surrender their life to god and they would need to worry about anything that were doing in the dark because it is going to come to the light anyway. host: so, terry, you don't think other countries have the technology just by and us as well? they have technology but they don't have what the united states has, that is why we are number one. " has a york times. follow-up on syria. is on ourmaryland, he independent line from woodbine, maryland. hello. question, answer your first of all, i do agree with it or it to the government steered to us, we judge other governments. i think the people of the country, people of the united states, germany, france, the citizen would take it bad when they hear about it. the fact of the matter is that the government does it and we all know that they do it. notbenefits to have it are alway
. they are licensing our technology. they learned from the mistakes we have made. they are like nation states competing. other countries are going to catch up on the private sector side of it, especially if their infrastructure is advanced. many of us are involved in ideas here. this capital point he makes -- and he is the doyen of understanding that -- and how we can model and maybe i can go to an example. it works and it works really well. it is a profit maker. it is a government arm, but a phenomenal example of how all things government are not bad, right? we need to figure out how we do that for infrastructure. we need to have a summit approach to that topic alone, because i think ports and rail and airports and all that, this is becoming a bottleneck. the positive side is the reason our energy market has become what it has become is because we have infrastructure. this country's pipeline and storage networks and energy, which is why it is so important that we do not disable that -- that is why we have a domestic energy sector that is so competitive, to make a point. there is proof positive to why
in a discussion about expansion of nuclear power in iran, russian technology in iran. they make announcements about it regularly. i think it is unlikely to proceed very far very fast until the one that has been on the verge of opening for many years actually does begin to function. the negotiation of the five plus is complex enough as it is. but i do not believe that an expansion of nuclear power, or an intention to expand that will happen much later, really adds to the nature of the negotiation we are in right now. >> may i just say that iran is a big part of the whole puzzle because of assad and hezbollah. there it is as a separate agenda contrary to our interests. that six y thankful plants six new power were not completed before he felt, or the ayatollah would have those in his control. let me just repeat that it is still there plan to use nuclear power plant as a cover for a nuclear weapons program. we have to deal with it now rather than later. we have to make it part of a program that says you do not have an inherent right to these nuclear power plants and we're going to block it. if w
, but achievable. we have partners who are prepared to contribute financially and in terms of technology to achieving this goal. we have a very determined cadre of federal employments who are working hard to make sure that we have thought through a plan that is complicated, but achievable in terms of logistics and security. and i am increasingly confident that we will be able to complete this task, the elimination of syria's cw program, within the target date of june 30 next year. secondly, a couple of key factors that will contribute to the achievement of that target date, and that so far are going well. first, we discussed back in geneva with the russians that the removal of dangerous precursor chemicals from syria, the bulk of which are not weapon -- weaponized, not inside shells, are crucial to completing this task on time. the plan embraces exactly that concept, and we are confident that we will have a host country that can work with us to effect the distraction outside of -- the distraction outside of syria of these precursor chemicals. secondly, our cooperation with the russian f
wrote, it asked me if i wanted to put something on my calendar. with changes in technology, what is the fuss about? ifs is an open question, anybody would like to respond. [applause] these types of dialogs are very important. these discussions are the rings our electedgs officials consider when they decide to make changes in our laws. things that change the landscape of the laws that were enacted when those things did not exist. that is very important. to get back to the point on political groups, for example. a scenario where we have a situation where we have a , adicated investigation violation of federal law has occurred or will occur. it is determined that the people involved are either a political candidate, a politician, or involved in a political organization. .hat steps up the oversight we recognize the effect that might have in chilling people's involvement in political activity. it gets even more oversight and scrutiny that it would if that identical situation existed and there was not a political entity or an individual involved in politics and that the tick interact.
agree. it is more than just a website, and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. when middle-class families are getting hit with massive premium increases and outrageous to dr. bowles, it is more than just a website -- outrageous to dr. eductibles,is -- d it is more than just a website. when hard-working americans are seeing their hours cut and pay cuts shrink -- paychecks shrink, it is more than just a website. when more people are losing them -- their plans that are able to enroll in new ones, it is more than just a website. take rebecca from muncie, indiana. she is one of the many americans who received a letter saying her current individual health care plan will be canceled due to obamacare. she discovered the premiums in the government-approved plans are double and triple what she is paying now. she wants to know why she can't keep her current plan, as the president promised. there are stories like rebecca's all across the country. and the administration knew this would happen. this week, the public learned that for at least the past three years the obama ad

technology has revolutionized so many areas of our lives. well, it's also revolutionizing the way that members of congress representatives connect with the people they represent. and that republicans need to embrace these tools that we have for communication. so when i first -- when i first ran for leadership, i was focused on bringing the republicans in to the 21st century as they related to social media. and we had -- when i was first elected, 30% of our members that were on twitter or facebook. this was 2008 after the 2008 election. and today we have 95%. and members that still were using pagers rather than converting to the blackberries or smart phones, you know, they've made that transition and members that have been here for many, many years recognizing they needed to change. i remember jerry lewis. a congressman out of the los angeles area, he described it as the difference between when we went from radio to television that that's the same kind of communication transition going on today where people get their news, they interact both personally and professionally. and there
. helping, by the way, sell gas technology. becoming i think today number ne in the field because of the united states. so we see good examples of economic partners. if you are satisfied with the interruption between russia and the united states, i would say no. economies like yours and ours is almost -- it is less than 7% of foreign trade which does not put the united states partners, by the same token russia is not your biggest economic partner either, however the possibility to develop this trade is enormously high. on top of that i think we are lacking direction between the societies of both countries. we would like to see more dialogue between the legislators of both countries. when people talk, when they explain themselves and they explain what they do, and they theain what they do not do, conversation is getting much more healthy. and my third point, related to both the first and second, is what we are missing after the more than 20 years after the cold war was over is a little it of normalsy in relations. suggesting that everybody is looking for drama in u.s.-russian relat

power in iran, russian technology in iran. they make announcements about it regularly. i think it is unlikely to proceed very far, very fast until bush-air which has been on the verge of opening many years does begin to function. the negotiation of the five plus one with iran is complex enough as it is. i do not believe that an expansion of nuclear power or intention to expand that will happen much later really adds to the nature of the negotiation we're in right now. >> may i just say that iran is a big part of this whole puzzle because of assad, hezbollah. there it is sitting there with a separate agenda totally contrary to our national interest. we are fortunate our deal with the shah to sell six nuclear power plants was not completed before he fell or the ayatollah would have had six nuclear power plants with uranium and plutonium in that country that. would have been a disaster. for us to let them repeat history because that's been their plan to use the civilian nuclear power plants as a cover for nuclear weapons program, that we have to deal it with now rather than later.
have changed somewhat. they still use old-fashioned methods. they are also using computer technology in ways that they can hide messages in what look like an innocuous picture. these were people posing as americans who have been specially trained to do that. some of them lived ordinary lives in new jersey or other places, and for all the world and their neighbors knew, they were ordinary americans, but they were russian spies. host: the stories we heard and read about, what are some of the names from 2010? guest: one of the most famous names was anna chapman. she got a medal from vladimir putin and became the russian equivalent of playboy or penthouse. she has her own tv show now. she was posing as a real estate agent and living in new york. nobody knew she was a russian spy. host: robert, west virginia, republican caller. go ahead. caller: i would like to ask if he has any knowledge of us possibly training russian troops in the carolinas on marine bases? guest: no, i do not. host: why do you ask? caller: i ask for security reasons. why will be be training russian troops -- why would
technological capacities, the collection of data that on a scale that makes the incidental u.s. communications acquisition not just likely, but certain. theiggest concern is that unintentional environment is a bit this ingenuous. >> how would you correct that? >> there are a couple of possibilities. they all get to the same place. one is, not to allow the government to file for a directive if they have reason to believe that a certain percentage of the intercepted mutations will actually involve u.s. persons. one is to not just require those requirement, but what those requirements are. the threshold issue is that it is just too likely that communications are being accidentally picked up, or it incidentally picked up even when the government cannot go back -- go after them. they need to scale that back. professor, did i hear you correctly to say that you do not think section 702 bears the weight that has been put upon it in terms of authorizing the bulk collection program? did i catch that? referring to section 215. >> yes, section 215. that is your view? on the understanding of the current st
to the technology. it used to be a scanner is all you had. now it is on a global magnitude. what are they intended to target somebody, i believe that comes under the fisa court. to fact they listen something is basically because they can. it would be physically impossible to analyze, to the degree that people think it is being analyzed, all of that data. on the other story, which has been echoed on collars and other things, i am one of those that is skeptical that the president did not know about this. go back to fast and furious, benghazi, the irs, it is almost like he has the sergeant schultz of "i know nothing." dianne feinstein is time to provide cover to support that idea. i find it hard to believe the commander-in-chief knew nothing about this. it does not make any sense. it does not pass the smell test. it will all come out in the end. i think. i don't know. congress doesn't seem to be doing much of anything, especially when it comes to this. and we are going to come up with something new. thank you, c-span, you do a wonderful job. are you going to be watching the hearing? i'm retired, i am
, and then take science and technology, most notably the genomic project that is going on that has untold benefits, what the american people want to see is to help them out, to solve their problem, to help them get better health care. end do not want to see this lists, less filling debate from the committee. i challenge the chairman, let's do what we did with tax reform and break down into individual groups and solve this problem together so that we are taking the best of the public sector the best of the private sector, and all of it, innovation, technology, can bring to bear on changing the paradigm for the american citizen. so it is their health and well- being that becomes the focus, not the ideology of either pollard -- party, but the health and well-being of the american citizen. that is what this should be about. we can do it. by taking both sides of what both parties and both ideas can bring to this discussion, the best of the private sector, the best of the public sector, and everything science and technology and innovation can provide. there is more than $800 billion annually wasted inef
: with the technology that we have for scanning at grocery stores, has there been discussions for the sake of nutrition and savings -- using that technology to weed out certain products from running through the chills in this program -- through the tills in this program? guard i am one to individual rights and privacy, so i am careful about that thing -- that kind of thing. it is a public program, so we have to make sure that there is a reasonable, commonsense rule. that is something that we have to work on and are working on in terms of the food stamp program. will benator hoeven gathering with his other conferees to hash out their differences on this farm bill. we will have coverage on c- span.org. senator, thanks for your time. guest: good to be with you. host: let me remind our viewers --kathleen sebelius is giving her opening statement. the system has been strengthened with double the size of servers, software that is better optimized, and a high- capacity physical database. referred to outages this weekend and again yesterday. if you readest that it isatement of verizon, the verizon server that f
of technology to enhance the quality control on loan origination. we have been working to that end. earlier this year, i committed the enterprises would take two significant steps regarding this. all claims to be made on pre-servitor ship loans need to be made by the end of this year. it is time for us to wrap up the issues dealing with that time and move on. fannie and freddie are on track with regard to completing this. i am pleased with the cooperation of counterparties to resolve this challenging -- these challenging business matters in a professional way. i look forward to a speedy resolution of remaining claims in the coming months. second, since the start of this year for all new production, the model has been changed to rely upon the quality control review process taking place near the time of purchase rather than waiting until much later, such as when a mortgage becomes delinquent. the. for which it remains active except for limited issues such as fraud is now limited to three years. in the future, we will continue to refine and improve upon this new framework. important strides ha
. to improve the quality of teaching in the classrooms and more innovation in technology, improving education was my first priority as governor. it was where my passions were and continue to be and i guess it's the reason i have been invited here tonight and i thank you for allowing me to be part of a movement to make sure that every child learns in america and that we rebuild our country in a more optimistic way rather than trying to redistribute wealth which has failed us. [applause] here is what i know to be true, that god has given every child able you to learn. it is up to the adults to organize the system around them rather than around the economic interests of the adults in the system that do quite well. if we did that, we would be far better off. [applause] next, while much of the debate over our nation's immigration policies have been dominated by explosive political rhetoric, the conversation has largely ignored the economic imperative of fixing a broken immigration system. we are rapidly moving towards an aging population which means less productivity, fewer workers, lower growth,
? outside the knowledge of the administration? sort of spooky, isn't it, mr. speaker? technology may change but the constitution does not. we cannot have security -- we can have security but not at the cost of losing individual freedom, because to quote the constitutional law professor, there should be no choice between the liberties we cherish and the security we provide. and that's just the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from ohio, ms. kaptur, for five minutes. ms. kaptur: thank you. mr. speaker, politico recently reported that the u.s. trade representative, michael foman, is pressing for another trade bill as soon as possible. this one called the transpacific partnership signed with asian pacific countries, about a dozen of them. whether it's the obama administration, the bush first or bush second administration, or clinton administration, the executive branch continues to push the same old failed trade model that puts foreign involvements in multinational interests ahead of america's workers and america's
of the mix. the largest part of our energy mix. do not make it more difficult. help me find the technology that would continue to clean up the environment. would've done more in the last two decades than ever before in the history. we can even do more. we like to think we have a partner. in west virginia, our government is working against us. i think they are, too. i am trying to get every door open that i can work with. i'm not going to sit back and not to let them know what we do and how hard we do and how much energy we provide for this country. and some the best coal in the world comes from west virginia. we do not mind heavy lifting. we will do the heavy lifting. we would like for somebody to recognize and appreciate. >> based on all of that, you're been washington for a couple of years. is the senate what you expected? >> no, absolutely not. i guess i live that through the eyes of robert byrd and his reference for this institution. -- reverence for this institution. i thought it was always country first and state second. it is not what i see. i see 100 good people. i really do. i do
. this includes border security, enforcement of our laws, meets the needs of the businesses, the technology sector, the agriculture sector, other important sectors that rely on immigrant work force. and, yes, we can count the votes, mr. speaker. we can help majority whip mccarthy with his job, the votes for a pathway to citizenship, i'm proud to report back to my colleague from texas which i know is part of republican leadership and my good colleague, were sessions, we can -- mr. sessions, we can report back that 29 house republicans have endorsed the pathway to citizenship. the principles included in h.r. 15 and the senate bill and many more citizens have privately committed their support. and yet we're hearing more and more about counterproductive measures that might be brought to the house. for instance, there's -- i heard there might be an effort to introduce the so-called safe act in an immigration package which would essentially turn undocumented people into criminals overnight. can you imagine trying to enforce a set of laws there were 10 million or 15 million criminals in our country? now,
will continue to make investments in these cutting edge technologies. so our economy has made progress and that progress has made the united states an even better place to invest. but i want to underscore for everyone here that we are not satisfied with the current pace of job creation and economic growth. we know that there are things that we can do to invest in american skills, american innovation, and american infrastructure. so that the united states remains the most attractive place around the globe to do business. taking action in these areas is good for growth and it's good for job creation. while the process create unnecessary anxiety, congress proved it can still do what is needed when it came together on a bipartisan basis just two weeks ago to reopen our government and raise the statutory debt limit. it's now time for congress to make a pro-growth, pro-jobs ageneral ka the focal point. this will strengthen our economy at home and further cement the united states as the best place to invest, hire, and grow businesses. let me point to the key areas we we can make a difference
